I am not, and will never be, a photog. But I can sure try.

Part dos of Columbia’s multimedia boot camp involved a crash course in photography, which meant having to address my physical and emotional aversion to shooting manually on a DSLR while “lurking,” as one fellow student pointed out, in Central Park.

Next up, a photo essay. Successful results (hopefully) will be posted next week.
